Welcome to Arctic Ride for Dreams

July 1st, 2013 to November 1st, 2013:

Miami – Alaska – Nova Scotia – New England – Miami.

I, Andrew Hayward Smith, will ride my 865cc, 2007 Triumph Bonneville motorcycle on an interactive fundraising journey from Miami to the Arctic Circle, across Canada to Nova Scotia, and back to Miami. A total of 15,000 miles in 120 days from July 1st to November 1st, 2013.

Click here to view the route on a Google Map, track my progress, and read the list of key dates & places.

Why interactive? Because through Facebook, email and comments on this web site you can challenge me to vist or volunteer with charitable organizations, ask me to do something, or set a fun goal for me to attain. It’s all to raise funds and awareness for noble causes.

You do the easy part:

Challenge Me… & Pledge to Donate to a Charity… When the Challenge is Complete.

I do the difficult part:

Completing the goals and riding 15,000 miles to the Arctic Circle and back.

You get to follow the fun via GPS tracking of my progress, this web site and Facebook.
